I Have A Dream
by Derek Minor

Album: The Trap


Verse 1
I have a dream that's similar to Dr. King's
Let freedom ring in the streets
I have a dream that there was nothing left to protest
Because all of God's people would treat each other equal
I have a dream that our blood-stained blocks with young men shot are now clean
No more shoulders cried on with mother's tears
I have a dream that the me too movement was not needed
And all of our women like queens they were treated
I have a dream that our soldiers came home and the war stopped
Prison wasn't for profit, treating bodies like stocks
I have a dream that from dawn until dusk we all know we're loved till we turn into dust, oh God (I have a dream)
I have a dream
I have a dream
I have a dream dream dream
I have a dream dream dream
I have a dream

Verse 2
I look around the world and all I see
Is just a broken version of what it's supposed to be
Murder, lie, cheat, steal, kill
For the love of money
And pursuit of power
Kids wounded by adult figures
And they cry at night and that's
Scar tissue
Politicians make decisions that hinders the lives of the poors and don't see the issue
Churches take money from God, children play any part in the politics
It's hard to know who to trust when the truth is irrelevant to the reverent
God, we really need your medicine 'cause the painkillers never kill the pain
They just numb it all (they just numb it all)
We wanna feel (we wanna feel)

I have a dream (But it's lost)
(Dream, dream, dream)
I have a dream
(Dream, dream, dream)
I have a dream
(Dream, dream, dream)
Oh Lord, I have a dream, dream, dream (Dream)
I have a dream, dream, dream (Dream)
I have a dream


Verse 3
Uh, this is my PSA for all of my dawgs who've been gay
And all of the others that work 9 to 5 and they grind but they can't get a raise on they pay
I look to the day when chemicals not in our food and judges they judge by the truth
And malice is not in they rules, the police can stay home 'cause really there's nothin' to do, nothin' to do
I keep on talkin' equality (equality) 'cause I see families dyin' (dyin')
I don't want more than we're supposed to have (supposed to have) I just want all of us thrivin' (thrivin')
I'm really prayin' the prayer that God said in the New Testament (yeah, dream)
"Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on Earth like in Heaven"
This is my dream

Outro
They can hold us down, pray for our fall
When all is lost, dream on
Dream on, dream on
When all is lost, dream on
They can hold us down, pray for our fall
When all is lost, dream on
Dream on, dream on
When all is lost, dream
